Minor Topics in Biomedical Sciences


In this minor four topics in biomedical sciences are being discussed. In addition there is an open slot in January to give you the opportunity to choose another course of your own interest. Some courses will go into greater depth in certain topics (Biochemistry of Health and Disease, Molecular Principles of Brain Disorders) and Experimental Immunology will show you, hands on, how immunological research is performed and interpreted. The course Antimicrobial Compounds: From Clinical Use to Target Analysis and Drug Development will show you how interdisciplinary research may disclose new drug targets and lead to drugs for clinical use. The minor is advanced and interdisciplinary and is a good preparation for various master programs.
